fruit, granola, and trail mix. It was yummy and most of the sisters could have it because it was sugar free. I was the official spinner cause I was worried it would take so long to spin. It only took one hour to finish up.
Munchie Munch is by far my earliest speaker. Ry started with the exact same words at 10 months and Gator was my latest but most clear at 18 months. I have no doubt it is because she has two older siblings who consistantly speak to her. We have started signing with her as well, but she hasn't picked up any of those yet.

I am mostly caught up on the happenings here at the H household. There are just a few things I wanted to remember...
I am one of Gator's primary teachers. His class is so funny and the things they say have me not being so reverent....Like two weeks ago I saw Gator with both hands down the back of his pants....
Me-"Gator boy get your hands outa your pants please!"
Gator-"MOOOOOooooommm I got exx-i-ma on my booty!"
Me-"You need to take your hands out though" (also giving him that look that means business)
Gator-"Why????? will I get STINKY Bum Finger?" (pulls out both hands and simultaneously give all fingers a sniff, just like on that movie with the girl... YOu know?)
"They don't even smell bad Mom!"
(Me and Sister M die laughing)
The other day I was fixing dinner. Gator walks into the kitchen grabs the handles to our fridge/freezer and begins to climb it...
Me-"Hey Sir, get down I don't like you climbing on the fridge that way"
Gator-"But, I am Magnet man.. I can climb fridges, walls..... uuuhhh post-est-es..."
Me-"Not a good idea!"
Gator-Storms off...."DANG GIT"
Sometimes when Munchie get tired in the car she hums loud to put herself to sleep... This just about drives Gator nuts. So I will turn on the radio to drown out the humming and take his mind off of it... She was having an episode of humming and Gator trying hard to be patient with his little sister says.
"Hey mom, how bout some tunes?"
(What the Four year old)
Gator loved the pie action, our family got up in front of the school and talked about Gator and his broken heart. Then when I was all done I told the school that Gator had something to tell them... At first he said "I can't remember Mom"... then in the mic he said..."Thank You!" and the kids all cheered. It was a fun event.Such a great daddy. He held Gator for all the kids to see, since he is such a short little man. Gator waved at everyone like he was a celebrity.

At her age bracket they don't really keep score. It is about team work, learning rules and having fun. Her team did do pretty darn good and only lost 2 games. It was hard to watch the games they won by a land slide, because I like it when the other team scored too. Those other teams little slumped shoulders and the mommies and daddies explaining that they still did a good job. It was way better to have them almost tie. I don't think her heart was in the last game, she just wanted the treats and the trophy. I asked her what next? She wants to try swimming and then maybe Ballroom dancing. Her logic.... They dance and they get to wear those flowing gowns and high heal shoes... Win all around! My problem is where can I sign a 6 year old up for that?
